About Super Lawyers
Super Lawyers selects attorneys by evaluating 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. These indicators include client outcomes (verdicts/settlements), special licenses/certifications earned, activity within professional organizations, honors/awards, and community services.
Candidates scoring the highest after this independent research are evaluated by their peers. In the end, only 5% are recognized as Super Lawyers. Only 2.5% are selected as Rising Stars in their practice area concentration. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis.
The result is a comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel.
